I was out in the chicken yard today watching my chickens and saw my rooster do something that really surprised me. I have two of those polyeurathane feeders with the raised bottom on the inside. The floor of the feeder is shaped like a cone so that the feed slides down the floor of the feeder to the holes around the outside. When the feeder is almost empty there is sometimes still food inside that didn't slide down. Today I saw my rooster go to the feeder and when he saw there wasn't any food in the holes he used his head to pick up the metal handle that was hanging along the side and let it drop, hitting the side of the feeder. When it hit, food came spilling down! He did this for several minutes over and over again until he had eaten all the food that was left in the feeder! No one can ever tell me chickens are dumb!!!
